Corymbia bella

A beautiful stately Ghostgum, this 8-10 (20) metre tree grows from Broome to most points north, and East to the Edgar Range and East Kimberley. A slightly weeping habit, clusters of white flowers and a smooth white trunk are the main features. One of several species once called Eucalyptus papuana. This tree can be difficult to identify from Corymbia paractia and Corymbia flavescens.
